chamber of commerce and the american civil liberties union. it gives you a sense we have not settled on big ideas yet. >> peter: let me ask you about the possibility the president can step in here through executive action. if you were advising the president today would you recommend the wise house step in and if so, what should they do and what can they do? >> that is a close call. we do need some momentum. there are those of us that are watching the activity on the hill are suggesting there is some common ground. we need to generate momentum for the future. the executive order does that, and frankly, that's probably a good thing. but it is a limited thing. it comes with a tariff. acids before, the problem right now is we lack political concensus. an executive order is an admission we lack political consensus but we are going to move forward anyway. even if these are correct steps we are moving forward in a sensitive area without the two political branches of government being in agreement. as director of nsa and cia, i operated on the outer reaches of executive prerogative doing thin
the u.s. chamber of commerce. but first, an exclusive interview with the chief of u.s. air force. space command general william shelton. few commanders are more operationally integral to all arms of u.s. warfighting than the air force space command that develops, launches, and operates the constellations of satellites and ground systems that make possible critical global services from gps, reconnaissance, missile warning, weather communications, or tracking orbiting spacecraft and debris. but developing satellites, launching them, and operating them for long periods of time is expensive business at a time when demand for space-based assets for everything from reconnaissance, surveillance communications, and moving massive amounts of data is soaring. so shelton is leading efforts to cut costs by increasingly leaning on commercial space suppliers. we caught up with general shelton at the air force association's annual conference near washington, d.c. i asked him how sequestration will impact the command so important to global capabilities. >> it's a very good question. we don't know. se

health, public safety, commerce. so we need to be looking with a vision for the future about what we want our city to be. and i think i have done that before and like i said, i'm for prevention. and i'm for looking to the future and figuring out how we can sculpt a better san francisco and that is what i will do as supervisor. thank you, mr. davis. i want to remind folks and point out that we have seen a disturbing trend in san francisco over the past couple ever years. of years. we have had a lot of leadership appointed for us. an appointed mayor, appointed district attorney when our leaders are chosen for us instead of by us. if you want leadership in our city, i'll i'm your candidate. at juliandavis.org, there is more detail about the grassroots campaign we're building. i encourage you to look where the candidates are getting their money from. i think it says a lot about whose interests they will be representing. thank you. >> anybody else? miss olague? >> again, i just wanted to welcome all of you to the office, room 256 of city hall and we are engaging with neighbors all the
it be community safety, housing, commerce, recreation and open space element -- any decision that we take should look at all of the issues that the plan contains. this specific plan does address specifically the areas that we see at most risk that was pointed out, where might we see tsunamis and all of these and we see that. but when we are making decisions and coding or planning code should be based on accurate maps. this is gives an idea we should look out for this area and an area of risk but if we want to go into the specific risks like with treasury island look at the data at that point and time. >> thank you. >> i wanted to thank you for the presentations. i had a question from the -- or from the public testimony. i know that at the joint policy committee which is the a bag mtc and air district and that body we're looking at sea level rise analysis, and there are new methods looked at right now for large disaster events that will be coming more frequently in the future and i think they said once a month and in 40 years there will be something once a month and how it impacts to those ar
speaker, mr. lazarus? >> good afternoon, supervisors, chamber of commerce, we appreciate the opportunity last year and way back in 2006 in working with the city in developing healthy san francisco program, the health care security ordinance, it's a complicated issue, much that was broukt up from the grand ju, we appreciate their work and we cooperate yearly, thing that is are covered by federal law, it's not an easy solution, but the vast majority of san francisco businesses provide insurance and the vast, vast majority of son fra*ns businesses are spending required amounts of money, every survey and report by your agency show that and supervisor campos has acknowledge hated but there is an issue with some categories of business, but we're working together, small business associations, the chamber on educating employers and employees on the rights and obligations under this law. we've worked with television ads on cable television, the city, websites, direct communication with members, thousands of employers have been communicated with by our organizations and by the city to understand h
of this program. i heard that indirectly that supervisor elsbernd told the chamber of commerce he might be interested in being a customer as well, so i think there are a number of people that want to add themselves to that list, but we do take the concerns that were raised very, very seriously, so colleagues do we have any other comments, questions? seeing none why don't we move on to the next item, item four. >> item number four a resolution of accommodations first for ed harrington general manager of the san francisco public utilities commission and michael campbell and director for the san francisco public utilities commission. >> well, thank you very much and we have two resolutions of accommodation to two very important individuals and ed harrington being the first one and so much has been said about ed harrington that i don't know if we need to add to all the numerous things that have rightly said about him. i doubt that ed harrington is watching the lafco meeting. i am sure one of the benefits that he was looking forward to when he retired he no longer had to come to these mee
never was although he gave his vote on the commerce clause to the other for conservatives, but i always thought he would be the decider. this would indicate that he's kind of changing his tune of attacking more to the metal. this term will tell because unlike the health care case, this coming term that has affirmative action and almost certainly voting rights took the big great subjects and rate has been his subject just like federalism was kennedy. roberts is entering his eighth term as the chief justice, so, early in his tenure in the case in 2007 where he said the way to stop discriminating by race is to stop discriminating by race he says as in validating an effort by the systems to keep public schools from resegregate in. he's eager to get into the subjects. what i expect attacking to the metal on those i don't think so but i'm not 100% sure it is the question of the moment. this is where the roberts court is about to meet the road there is a decision to be made between what a judge believes, and he deeply believes it is wrong for the government to classify or count people by race
department of commerce to give back free, yes, free money right in the middle of the mall. >> you guys want to find some money? >> reporter: there's just one problem. >> do you want some money? are you sure? >> reporter: these skeptical shoppers don't believe us. >> you guys want to look up unclaimed property and see if you have any money waiting for you. we got thousands of dollars. millions of dollars. >> reporter: but they should. statistics show one in ten of us has unclaimed money waiting. it comes from things like forgotten apartment security deposits, final paychecks you didn't pick up and money left to you by loved ones. the states hold it for their citizens. minnesota commerce commissioner mike rothman loves giving it back. >> check, if there's nothing there, fine, but you never know. it could be a hundred dollars. a thousand dollars or tens of thousands of dollars that's your money. >> there you go. >> reporter: kathy westin is one of the doubters. can we change her mind? >> yes. whoo-h whoo-hoo. >> reporter: yes, with a nice find, $675 for her extended family. >> i'm very happy.
workman representing the san francisco chamber of commerce. the chamber strongly supports this establish to establish a successor agency to the redevelopment agency. the item is critically important to continuing the projects that are already underway burb these projects need to be governed by one agency, reporting to one elected official. san francisco has had a redevelopment program governed by a commission overseen by the mayor and confirmed by the board of supervisors. commissioners and departments need to know who they report to on an administrative basis. split appointments disrupt that relationship. the board of supervisors retains significant budget and policy oversight over agencies such as redevelopment. there is no need to interject the board into the nomination of these commissioners. we urge you to retain the historic redevelopment commission appointment process for this new agency. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker. >> good afternoon, commissioners and hello san francisco. there is one word i would like to mention that probably seems to have no bearing on this issue o
lie detection. there the commerce is pushing the science a little bit faster than maybe it ought to. i agree. >> the science. >> the science, right, exactly. >> ok, we have some questions from the audience that i would like to ask. and i think most of these are probably for the doctor. first question, how does the brain research impact drug cases when the defendand is an addict? >> addiction does bad things to the brain. it dramatically changes the brain. in certain individuals, there is enormous vulnerabilities and risk factors from genetics and brain function that can precipitate or make it to be easier to get addicted to drugs. and there have been, i think, quite a bit of neuroscience focusing on trying to develop better treatments for individuals by understanding the mechanism of those changes. in the courtroom, i believe that to help judges, judges when we do the education, one of my collaborators who does this work teaches them how the brain changes with addiction, et cetera, et cetera. that may be helpful for judges sentencing to drug courts for addiction problem instead of pris
to regulate bpa. bpa is protected by its use in interstate commerce, making it difficult for the fda to restrict use. >> there is a lot of push-back from the chemical industry from the companies that are making these products that are convinced that they're safe at the levels that humans are exposed to, and they have their influence within government bodies, as much as do scientists or perhaps more have their influence. so a lot of different things need to be evaluated and weighed in making decisions and that's what has slowed processes down. >> while the fda has stalled action at the federal level, state and local governments as well as regulators in other nations have banned it. >> 11 states have passed legislation restricting the use of bpa. and in virtually all of those states, there are additional attempts being made to further restrict bpa in essentially all kinds of food contact uses. canada has declared bisphenyl a a toxic chemical. it's restricted for use in china, some countries in south america, around the world. >> in science, nothing is black and white, cut everything fa
on by the u.s. chamber of commerce and we made sure that we were there. this from the experience, i know that veterans tend to do well in our careers. usually it is just a matter of letting them know all the different opportunities that are out there. giving us a chance to get them into our interviewing process. neil: i know you remind folks given the discipline and organization of the veterans in general, that they are of interest to employers because they are very loyal. for another thing, they worked their butts off. is that message getting through? >> i think that it is. i think in our career, especially having daily disciplines, it serves them very well and the financial services field. they have a sense of service. they join the military to protect the country and they serve the nation. now, in our field, they really serve our communities. one family, one business at a time. we find that just that reliability, that discipline, that willingness to serve others, it always serves them really well and serves our policy is part of our field force. neil: why is unemployment higher than t
with other nations. i look to thomas jefferson's quotation for inspirion. peace, converse -- commerce, -- america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum board is defense, not offense. we do not have the mour money cy spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- includingraq, afghanist, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped o enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us with iran? how much has russia helped us with the situation in afghanistan? giving special attention to chavez and turning our back on netanyahu when he wanted to meet with the president, the sending of mixed signals is very destructive to foreign p
